Some of you might remember the old Nintendo NSider forums. For reasons I do not know, they were shut down quite some time ago.

On the Pokemon section of these forums, there was an ongoing joke about how Drifloons were secretly the most evil pokemon that existed, and abducted children. I don't have the whole story/fan fiction but I'm sure it was out there.

The users of these forums thought it would be a clever idea to make an entire Pokedex of pokemon..combined with Drifloon. This was certainly fun, but when the NSider forums shut down, all of the cute Drifloon pokemanz were lost forever. It is my goal to finish the task of the Drifloon pokedex. Here's some example of some Drifloon sprites that I made:

Alakazam

Kyogre


Certainly open to anyone to make your own, and help complete the Pokedex or whatever. Would anyone actually be interested in helping? Thanks ;035;

^^Mindless praise does not improvement make.

Anyway, most of these are done well, considering that you mostly just copypasted Drifloon's head and face onto the bodies of other Pokemon. Alakazam, while it should be saved as .jpg, is the best.

Most of the Drifloon heads--Farfetch'd, Sceptile, and Alakazam--keep their black outline around the whole circle, giving the impression that the head is a separate entity from the body. The reason this works for Alakazam is that Alakazam's head and torso are two different colors, and thus have the same effect as it is. Sceptile's neck slides smoothly into its head, without a black outlines completely encircling either one. Your Sceptile's head also has an awkward kidney-shaped shading splotch on the bottom.

Farfetch'd's fusion is probably the worst. You took Drifloon's head and copypasted Farfetch'd parts onto it, which worked for the beak and feet, and arguably for the head tuft and the tail--but the wings look like they come from something behind the fusion. Its right wing (our left) is normally shaped for four feathers, then cuts a straight diagonal line to the body, leaving the illusion that there is a large triangular piece missing, or perhaps another feather entirely. The other wing has a similar appearance; try scratching the bottoms of them, and connecting them to the sides of the spherical body.

Gengar looks fine, though very plain; I would suggest moving its left eye (our right) up a wee bit.

I'm not sure what you even did with Kyogre. It seems like you put the little cross on it, then burned two white eyes into it, and left it. If anything you should at least make those eyes black again.

There's a lot more to Drifloon than its face; try using its arms, or the cloud on the top, rather than just its head, it will give a lot more variety to your fusions.

This is a lot like the old Dunsparce project that was going around. That was fun.

Wrong, it's Hypno. :p

Any way, the idea is cute but it's not approved so I must close it! (since it looks like a project, smells like a project so it must be one)
